The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has adopted the revised FIFA Anti-Doping Regulations (FIFA-ADR), the organization announced here on Wednesday.
The adoption of the regulations follows recommendations by the FA’s Medical Committee.
Consequently, the provisions of the FIFA Anti-Doping Regulations shall apply fully in Ghana Football from January 1 next year.
On November 27, 2019, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Foundation Board approved the new World Anti-Doping Code. FIFA, being a signatory to the code, consequently revised its anti-doping regulations, prompting its member associations to adopt the revised regulations.
FIFA introduced regular doping controls in 1966 to ensure that the results of matches in its international calendar were a fair reflection of the strength of the contenders.
